In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, Director of Football at Peterborough Barry Fry has claimed that David Gold and David Sullivan have received a lot of stick and abuse from West Ham fans since moving the club from Upton Park to the London Stadium.
The Hammers are currently experiencing their best season since moving to the London Stadium because with three games left in the Premier League, they still have a chance of qualifying for the Champions League.
David Moyes has surprised a lot of people this season in how he has managed to turn the Hammers’ fortunes around from relegation candidates last season to top-six challengers with just a few signings.
Speaking on why West Ham fans are not fond of Gold and Sullivan and how they have had to put up with a lot of stick from Irons supporters, Fry exclusively told FFC:
“The fans are upset because they left the Boleyn Ground where they had brought through a lot of good players, but even if God had been in charge of West Ham they wouldn’t have liked him.
“I think both the Davids and Karen got a horrendous amount of stick for doing the deal but they were thinking of the future for West Ham rather than the past, and I think they got a lot of unnecessary stick.”
The Hammers were in the driving seat to make the top four this season before three defeats in their last four games against Newcastle United, Chelsea and Everton derailed their chances.
West Ham have been hit with some big injuries at the back end of the season as Michail Antonio, Declan Rice, Mark Noble and Aaron Cresswell have all spent time on the sidelines.
